10 Reasons A Lawyer Won't Shop Your Demo

10 Reasons A Lawyer Won't Shop Your Demo | The Business of Music | Track Mail | Scoop.it
By Mita Carriman Esq from the Carriman Law Group PLLC. As a music lawyer, one of the most frequent services that artists contact me about is for demo shopping -and for obvious reasons.
